I want to share my story with you. I hope you don’t mind.
I miscarried in April, and was told by doctors in May that I was infertile and would have to go through IVF if I wanted to conceive. They also said that it would be difficult to carry because of my hormone levels. I set an appt with the RE for June 18, and set out to get my body as “fertility healthy” as possible before the appt.
I came across this website.
I began the fertility diet, and started taking some of the herbs they recommend. Part of my problem was low progesterone so I took the Chaste Tree Berry (Vitex) for that specifically. I also took Maca Root, and Royal Jelly. I was taking these supplements both morning and at night before bed. I wasn’t hoping for an immediate change. I just wanted to be able to know I did everything within my power to give the IVF the best chance of working.
My husband and I were completely shocked when I had a positive home pregnancy test on Father’s Day – just a few days before our RE appt. We felt blessed. I also need to mention that I was doing a spiritual fast during the month before my RE appt. I was praying specifically that God would ease my heart and prepare me for whatever He had in store for me.
All that to say – I am currently 21 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby boy. I truly believe that the combination for surrendering to God’s will, making healthy food choices, and giving my body the extra boost it needed through herbs made all the difference for me.
Thank you for your website.
